About the property

3 Bedrms/1.5 Bathrms, nr Burke Mtn, Kingdom Trails, Hill Farmstead Brewery

Carriage House Sleeps 3 couples (or 2 couples & kids) very comfortably (2 king-sized beds, a full-sized bed, a Captain's Bed (and an inner-spring mattress cot if needed), and downstairs is a full-sized inner-spring mattress couch-bed. Country privacy in Vermont's NE Kingdom. Close to nature and old-fashioned farm charm, peaceful -- a great get away. Let go, unwind, have fun, de-stress & relax, curl up in front of the wonderful warmth of the pellet stove, or knock yourself out in the great outdoors. 2-story Guest House has Old-Fashioned Rustic Charm and Elegance. In warm months there is an organic veggie garden for our guests (separate from our farm). The LARGE picture window upstairs looks out onto beautiful, changing mountain views and the antics of our animals--clear nights are great for star-gazing. There's also a supplementary wood stove downstairs for an occasional fire. Cook up a storm in the open kitchen--gather herbs & fresh organic greens from the Guest House garden, or check out nearby cafes-restaurants, and most especially the #1-Rated Hill Farmstead Brewery 20 minutes away. Free WiFi, cable TV & Blu-ray DVD (+Netflix access). We have games, cards, jigsaw puzzles, books, stuffed toys, crayons/art supplies, Audubon Nature Guides/binoculars & a recliner. Although we have a whole-house filter, we also have a 5-gallon hot/cold water dispenser, and encourage people to bring personal (not disposable) water bottles. Ask Marc about 5-Season Qigong or (de)Stress Management instruction/classes if interested.

About 400 feet up the hill is the VAST Trail for snowmobiling (or snowshoeing). Burke Mountain-Kingdom Trails and Craftsbury/the Open Center are a 1/2 hr away for world-class mtn. biking, hiking, skiing, snowshoeing, events, dog sledding, dining, more. Clear skies at night are great for star gazing (check out when the meteor showers are, too). It's about the experience of Mount Harmony Farm.

Please Note: The protected farm animals are not to be fed/petted by youngsters without supervision/instruction, as the donkeys do not always understand where carrots leave off and small fingers begin. They also are not horses (horses can be fed from open palms--but donkeys cannot). Also, do not fly a drone or aerial electronics on our property (elsewhere is fine)--the sound terrifies the animals.

Rates are for up to 4 people--additional guests are $25/person/nt (under 5 years old = free [limit of 3 freebies]--all infants are free)--single night occupancy is available at $191 for the night for 4 people.

SLEPT LIKE BABIES...: Dear Stephanie & Marc.-- We had a glorious time. We loved the downstairs great room and especially loved reading and looking at the donkeys and the mountains from the upstairs Great Room. We all slept like babies!!!!! It was such fun watching the birds and the chipmunk darting about outside. Torben loved snowshoeing on your property. -- Thanks for providing such a wonderful larder with spices, oils, rice (which I used), teas and Green Mtn Coffee, which I love. I did the cooking and they cleaned up! -- Thank you also for being the 'parents' for the rescued animals. We have friends who live in Woodstock, VT and the wife is totally committed to taking animals out of abusive homes. You are doing a great thing and your animals must be thankful to have you care for them. We loved hearing them 'talking' to Marc! -- Thank you so much. -- April & Torben

IT WAS LIKE COMING HOME: We read the website & write-ups, made the deal, but still didn't really know what to expect. It was like coming home to the family farm for Thanksgiving. We're not often welcomed by two mules, a gaggle of Geese, various sheep, and a pair of chipmunks. No moose though, at least not yet. Marc & Stephanie are like family. Staying here's been a treat. Raiding the vegetable garden, watching the chipmunk while reading on the deck, the view from upstairs, the 'sanctuary' across the road (all parks should be like this), the leaves turning, but not turned. Drive the byways, but better yet -- take the well-used Vermont Gazetteer and take those really skinny back roads that are red -- the dirt/gravel ones. Get lost, find your way. Go to the observatory at the top of Prospect Hill near Brownington, and look into Canada. Try them all -- they're good roads, often better than the asphalt ones. -- Pam & Les, Tyler TX

WOW!!!: Let me start off by saying WOW!!!!! You and your farm are amazing. It was so nice to meet folks who still have strong morals/values and treat animals/land with the love and respect they deserve. We really were just trying to 'get away', but you made our trip so much more than that!! And for that I THANK YOU. We would love to sit down with you two and listen to you speak so lovingly about your farm. My husband and I have had our share of many tragedies over the last few years and found it hard to get out of our pity party; in just two short days Mount Harmony provided us with the atmosphere to 'let go';. Your gratitude towards my husband's veteran status was unexpected and appreciated, I hope we did not insult you by not taking you up on your offer to stay a night 'on you'. If we didn't have [responsibilities], we would have taken you up on the offer in a heartbeat. We'll be back, but next time for a longer stay (they've been back many times).

About Marc Bourdelle

We are in our early 70s and we both keep our inner wonder child and creative centers alive. Much of our health is from eating the food we grow. Marc is very knowledgeable about a wide range of Daoist energy work/exercises and deep listening--Stef grounds her energies into the land, plants/growing things, photography, nature/living things, fixing things, and helping.

Marc Bourdelle purchased this house in 2006

Why Marc Bourdelle chose Sheffield

Land has never had pesticides. Two dwellings -- one with a huge picture window and a view to soak up; the other house (us) is an OLD farm/barn-house to build on the bones of. Room enough for us to be growing/expanding gradually and with care. Out in nature, yet on a paved road which is plowed regularly in winter, with a magical pristine hidden sanctuary just down the road. So much here to take in through the senses if one holds still.

What makes this house unique

Organic Guest House Garden during growing season, pure (filtered) well water (no chemicals), fresh air, plenty of ways to get exercise, or just soak up the constantly changing views from the huge picture window, unwind and de-stress. And our protected animals are entertaining. Unpolluted State forest (open May 1-November 1) with ponds (about 3/4 mile from here) is near-private, and the water is pristine (fishing, swimming, hiking, & a rugged hike to a scenic outlook). Easy access to Bread & Puppet (2 miles away), The Hill Farmstead Brewery, and Burke Mtn./Kingdom Trails nearby. Dog Mountain/Chapel/Gallery in St. Johnsbury (plus hiking paths & scenic outlook, & events) is popular with dogs & their owners. Canadian border (& Newport, VT) is a beautiful 1/2 hr ride north. Clyde River Recreation is on the way--great classes, kayaking & moonlight canoeing. It's really healthy to be here! Many Lakes & Ponds, & Farmer's Mkts. nearby. In winter the VAST Trail borders our property, Burke Mtn alpine skiing & the Craftsbury Open Center's x-country trails are about 1/2 hr away (in opposite directions). Hardwick food co-op is about 22 minutes away and has plenty of choices in an efficient space plus a nice cafe. Up the block from the co-op is Positive Pie--another great eating place with craft beers. Hill Farmstead Brewery (best micro brewery in the world, Ranked #1) is 20 min. away--very popular. Go to the Gogobot map and see some of the many choices.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We read the website write-ups, made the deal, but still didn't really know what to expect. It was -- is -- like coming home to the family farm for Thanksgiving. We're not often welcomed by two mules, a gaggle of Guinea hens -- including babies -- a goose with a wonky wing, and a pair of chipmunks (sunflower seeds are provided to give them). No moose though, at least not yet. And Marc & Stephanie are like family.

Go drive the byways, but better yet -- take the well-used Vermont Gazetteer provided and take those really skinny back roads that are red -- the dirt/gravel ones. Get lost, find your way. Go to the observatory at the top of Prospect Hill near Brownington, and look into Canada. Eat at the Mtn. View Inn on Darling Hill near E. Burke. Try them all -- they're good roads, often better than the asphalt ones.

Raiding the vegetable garden, watching the friendly chipmunk while reading on the deck, the view from upstairs, the 'state park' across the road (all parks should be like this) with the leaves turning, but not turned. Staying here's been a treat.

Amazing weekend getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

It's been about a week since our weekend at Stephanie's and Marc's guest house, got extremely busy and finally got some time to write a review.

My friends and I had the worse time getting in and out of Vermont. It was snowing a lot heavier than we expected and got stuck in the snow a couple times. We messaged Stephanie and Marc and they came out to help us out. I have never come across a more gracious host in my HomeAway and airbnb experience. They provide you with the keys to the house upon arrival and give you a tour of the house. The guest house is extremely cozy,and the view from the main bedroom is amazing! Due to the heavy snow they even offered to extend our stay for no charge, which was beyond kind and unexpected. If you're planning on a winter weekend getaway you should definitely stay here. We ended up going to ski at Burke mountain. The mountain itself was great, once we were done sking they have a bar/ restaurant indoors. Thank you Steffanie and Marc for being so helpful and such amazing hosts!! You guys made our weekend so much better! Will definitely visit again!

P.S: They have animals in the back that you can pet, hug and feed. We had such an amazing time!!

Owner's Response: Nodup & Zee, and Sangye & Tenzing were such interesting, kind & upbeat people. They had a number of difficulties with the extreme winter weather, but still had a great time. We love it when people cook up a storm & have fun here. We are looking forward to having them come back in summer when the organic guest house garden will offer them really good foods for their culinary passions, more comfortable weather than where they live, & great swimming nearby.

Super Charming Property in the NEK!

  • 5 of 5

Spacious rental located on Marc and Stephanie's beautiful farm. Rustic, eclectic, and bohemian, this spot has a little something for everyone whether you plan on hiking the nearby sanctuary, catching a show at Bread and Puppet, or simply staying in and watching the sunset over the mountains. The view from the back window alone is worth the price of admission! Be sure to grab the best beer in the world at Hill Farmstead and a pizza from Parker Pies, both nearby. Lake Willoughby is truly spectacular with lots of hiking options. Do yourself a favor and chat with Marc and Stephanie while you're there. They're fascinating folks!

Amazing, beautiful retreat!

A cozy charming getaway with amazing views and friendly hosts! We wish we lived here!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is clean and well equipped with everything you could need for cooking and relaxing with family or friends. We loved the hosts, who took great care to introduce us to the place and show us around. We also really loved the farm and adorable animals! The cottage is decorated so creatively and tastefully --feels like classic Vermont!

Owner's Response: Holly & AJ, & their boys Camden & Owen were wonderful. They left the place clean & were very helpful in stripping the beds & more. The weather was strangely warm & not suited for skiing, but they lets us know everything was really great. We look forward to having them come back--hope it's in the warm months when they can raid the organic Guest House veggie garden & go swimming/hiking in the nearby park. We will welcome them back in a heartbeat!

Nice home to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a good time in the house. The house was warm and cosy when we arrived and the table was set up ready for dinner. Stephanie and Marc were very pleasant and interesting hosts. They wanted us to have the best time we could during our stay. The large upstairs window was great to see the sunset over the mountains. We had a good time visiting the animals as well.

Another Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time my wife and I stayed in Marc and Stephanie's beautiful guest house and just like the first time, we didn't want to leave. Not only is the house incredibly charming and cozy, and complete with everything you could ever want in a Vermont retreat, but the scenery is absolutely gorgeous and Marc and Stephanie are undoubtedly two of the nicest people you will ever meet. I always recommend this rental for anyone looking to get away and spend a loving vacation in Vermont. It truly is one of our favorite places to go and I can't say enough positive things about the guest house, the hosts, and the location.

This Guest House, with lots of character & Old World touches, located in the heart of Vermont's NE Kingdom, is 400 feet from the VAST Trail & 20 minutes from The Hill Farmstead Brewery, Rated #1 in VT, the U.S., & the World. Restaurants, cafes & ski areas are nearby (Craftsbury's Outdoor Center, Burke Mtn. & Kingdom Trails are each within easy reach). Check our website for detailed listing of the many activities nearby, directions, and more photos. Free WiFi/internet, Dish HDTV w. Blu-ray Player, pellet stove (& supplementary wood stove) downstairs, baseboard heat upstairs. Our well water is healthier than what people drink from plastic bottles, and we have a hot/cold 5-gallon water dispenser as well. This is a great place to unwind & de-stress, kick back in nature for awhile, or knock yourself out in the great outdoors. Cook up something wonderful in the kitchen, or go out to a wide variety of great eating places. In summer the great eating place is right here -- just pick fresh organic items (& herbs) from the Guest House garden (growing season starts gradually & takes off in July/August), &/or select from the many spices we supply in the Guest House and voila! Parfait! Some herbs are potted up & for sale (& some flowers, too). From the LARGE Picture Window upstairs, you can watch the antics of our farm animals, birds at our feeders, wonderful sunsets, and stars on clear nights are beautiful -- check your Apps for when the meteor showers are.

Spring Peepers fill the night air in Spring, hummingbird moths and butterflies go for the lilacs in the daytime, then hummingbirds arrive -- busiest in early morn & late eve -- they have several feeders with one at a downstairs Guest House window. Luna Moths (and other large Saturnid moths) start making their appearance (after 11 pm) around the Solstice, then fireflies. Hummers start their migrations south around mid-late September. And the SNOW this year promises to be abundant.
